    LearnFromGuru’s VMware Training, combines the content of the VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage course with advanced tasks and skills for configuring a highly available and scalable virtual infrastructure. The course is based on VMware ESXi 6 and VMware vCenter Server 6. Completion of this course satisfies the prerequisite for taking the VMware Certified Professional 6 exam.

    Participants will be offered guidance and will share lot of demo’s on each topic with real time examples.

    Participants will also get to implement one project towards the end of the course.

    After the completion of the VMware at LearnFromGuru, you will be able to:

    • Configure and manage ESXi networking and storage
    • Create, configure, migrate, manage, and monitor virtual machines and virtual appliances
    • Use VMware vCenter Converter Standalone
    • Manage user access to the VMware virtual infrastructure
    • Use vCenter Server to monitor resource usage
    • Implement VMware vSphere High Availability and VMware vSphere Fault Tolerance
    • Use Host Profiles to manage ESXi configuration compliance
    • Use vSphere distributed switches to scale networking
    • Use profile-driven storage and Storage DRS to scale storage
    • Use VMware vCenter Update Manager to apply ESXi patches
    • Use VMware vSphere Management Assistant to manage vSphere
    • Deploy ESXi, vCenter Server, and vCenter Server Appliance
    • Use Image Builder to create an ESXi image
    • Use VMware vSphere Auto Deploy to provision ESXi hosts

    To learn this course you should have the willingness to participate in a demanding, high-intensity training experience Comfort with system administration using command-line interfaces Have a basic understanding of virtualization concepts.
